is referring to the fillmore intersection that is currently separated and the idea of filling that grade separation. so, it's actually all running at the surface. where we are with respect to the geary bus rapid transit corridor bus and how it relates to that, we've been doing some engineering work to really figure out what the options are for running the buses through that area, whether we run it in the existing tunnel or we run them on the sides or as commissioner suggested, filling the fillmore intersection. the geary project has concluded that there are workable options for if the fillmore is safe, it's compatible with running the buses in a dedicated center lane. and we'll be taking that option into our environmental analysis. we've done some preliminary costing work and we recognize that it would be a costly project to put solely on the rapid transit project. we have in mind that we want to compete nationally for federal transit funds to implement geary. we want to make sure it's competitive from a cost-effectiveness standpoint. so, we think that the filling of the totally by the g
in their time. fillmore, who was president when it was completed, sounds a little bit in his optimism like neville chairmanber lane coming bram from munich in 1938. i will say, parenthetically, that millard fill fillmore, probably the least warmly remembered -- well, one of -- presidents in our history. actually plays a very interesting plate -- politically deft roll in the compromise. so don't write him off. so in any wait, this is the story of the compromise -- i should say, to disstill it, it's a great story. it its an incredibly dramatic story filled, as dan said, with larger than life, fascinate can personalities. fillmore may not be one of the more fascinating ones, but extraordinary individuals. the longest debate in american political history. world class gridlock, and res summonses with today's gridlock? yes there are, though this book was not written as an argument about today's politics, but if you read it, you will draw some conclusions about the problems of compromise and what the kind of courage it takes to break gridlock and to compromise. it's a story -- the history, not ju

to one intersection at fillmore and jackson and they were terrific, actually we know that intersection, but it is, i mean it's one thing to say, oh, a muni conflict, but just the magnitude of a muni conflict sounds a little benign. muni conflict in that intersection means, i think there are 40 schools within an 8-block radius here. one muni getting backed up and jackknifing in front of the travel lane, it just, it really makes it a challenging atmosphere in the morning. anyways, i just want to get is more detail on that. this is, again, i totally agree these are great things for us and they allow people not only from a environmental perspective but people to live in san francisco and commute to these places where before a lot of the young people would have been down in the valley and not happy about it. at the same point in time in our neighborhoods they are, i maepb to manage it is i think a real real big issue for me. obviously commissioner olague --. >> (inaudible). >> it sounds almost cute when it says a muni conflict, but it's really awful, road rage. it's a big deal. >> thank

. in this vacuum in japan town, there was the fillmore district with african americans and a variety of other people and they moved into the community. and then japanese americans get out of camp and they come back to their neighborhood that has been populated and made into a different life and different world and what happens when those two communities overlap and intersect? whose place is it, whose home is it? who is an american? how do we sort of coexist in this post war period where the people from that community are by and large marginalized, yet you have this whole kind of other thing happening where it's -- the war has been won, this is like new things, television is happening, advertising, this whole advertising thing is happening. so you have these marginalized peoples and what happens, is it possible to develop a kind of at that moment a cross-cultural community? is it possible to have kind of a multi cultural community that emerged from that moment? and so, in particular, that's what i wanted to explore. and part of the back drop is there was this extraordinary jazz scene happening

legacy of driving african americans out of the fillmore and they had slated more than half the bay area for redevelopment before they were shut down. >> anything you'd like to add, peter? >> there's a number of assertions from my opponent that are based in a misunderstanding how affordable housing works in san francisco in this particular measure. unfortunately there's not enough time to tackle all of them, but i want to make clear this is not subsidizing middle income home owners. this is going to go primarily for low and very low householders in san francisco. that has always been the programmatic focus because you can leverage funding. we live in a high income market and that is exactly why we have an affordable sector in this city. when it comes it recreating redevelopment, that's a fallacy. it's about recognizing that redevelopment allowed a certain portion of money to be used for redevelopment. it's not about recreating redevelopment, in fact that's a closed chapter in history. lastly the idea we are reducing the mixed income housing is also a sort of fallacy. there is a pur
